I'm not a Tesla fanboy. Tesla probably is profitable with the Model S, even including capex and R&D. This is huge right there, as other car makers will need to respond. Probably will be soon be with the Model X. Not clear yet with the Model 3LR as to when, but at least years away, maybe a decade. Probably not now or soon, and maybe not ever, with the Model 3SR.
